KOHALA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL 3rd GRADERS
PLAY PING PONG FOR THEIR FIRST TIME
AT HISAOKA GYM, KAPA'AU, HAWAI'I
We had 59 3rd grade students, ages 7-8 come to the Hisaoka Gym on 9/04/2009. They were split into 2 groups of 28 students. This was the first experience for almost everyone of them to ever play ping ping. At the end of each 45 minute session, the students all indicated they loved the game, had loads of fun, and want to do it again! A ping pong ball was given to each student as they left, promising they would not play with the ball in class.....yeah, right!
